Viking Age

Viking Age Slot Review

Finally, there's a slot with a theme that's entirely new to me! It's actually a bit weird that the Vikings haven't gained the same popularity in gaming as they most certainly have in TV and film.
Anyway, a fresh theme – so you know what that means – trivia time!!

Here are some useless facts about these Nordic warriors:

  • Vikings were renowned for excellent hygiene. They even used tweezers and ear cleaners made of bone! (Ok – that's odd – I would never have expected that. I certainly wouldn't have made a good Viking in that case!)

  • Vikings were prolific slave traders. (not cool)

  • Vikings skied both as a hobby and sometimes as transportation,

  • Dark haired Vikings would bleach their hair blonde with lye to conform to their cultural standards of beauty.

  • Vikings were spread out in warring clans and never unified.

Viking Age is a striking video slot by Betsoft Gaming which takes you to join one of these legendary tribes on P.C, mobile device or tablet. An impressive animation sequence introduces players to the group of Vikings and their endless quest for treasure. Viking Age is intentionally tongue in cheek with some great humor, on a topic that could otherwise be gruesome. The buxom Viking lady named Ama welcomes you into the game, and if you take too long, she implores you to hurry up. (Man if I had a penny for every time a woman said that to me, I would be a rich man!)

Gameplay

Viking Age is a medium volatility 5 reel and 30 payline slot. The standard symbols are 2 rather oafish looking Vikings, a battleax, warship, stone with carving, crown, mast and wheel.
Special symbols includea helmet, Viking woman and arm wrestling icon.
{I'll explain what the functions of all of those are a bit later.)
The controls are artfully setup so as to not distract from the games design. Up top is Autoplay and View Pays. Down below are Choose Coin, Bet Per Line, Select Lines, Spin and Max Bet Spin.
You'll just have to ogle the Viking lady Ama slowly because there's no turbo spin.

Features

3 or more Ama symbols anywhere triggers 10 Multiplier Free Spins with an entirely different set of reels having an extra reel on either side containing multiplier values. Ama discovers multipliers hidden behind a stone and if players get a payline that has a matching start and end multiplier in their Free Spins, their win is multiplied by that amount!

Unique Features

  • Rhinestone Doors: Activated by 3 or more helmets, this feature lets you and Ama select a door, behind which a prizes of instant wins, Free Spins or a Bonus Round is awarded.

  • Bonus Round: 3 or more arm wrestling icons triggers the bonus round in which you choose a Viking and hope he wins the contest, thereby ensuring your prize.

Performance

I tested Viking Age on a few devices and had zero issues, but I must say I enjoyed it far more on a large screen – primarily because it's the only way to do justice to the superb animations and graphics. A perfect blend of humor and realism, these on-screen antics are truly immersive.

The music adds to the spirit of adventure while the sound effects cement the humorous side.

Conclusion

Viking Age is a memorable game with some incredible gameplay and graphics. When coupled with the innovative features, this slot is truly a fantastic game.

Just please don't leer at the cleavage too much.
